Guys! I'm really, honestly sorry about all this. I didn't plan this. I honestly didn't. But life happens anyways, and most of you already know that I've been having a very tough year.
It has been a long hiatus, though to me it didn't seem to be one. Time flies. June and July have flied by so fast, and I can't keep up, shit things happening one after the other, and I'm still coping... But it's a process. I'm functioning now enough to write and interact on this blog. As I promised, this first post is a list of June releases (from June 3rd) and the reviews I found about them until now. You're all welcome to let me know if you have a review that I forgot to add. Since July is also over, I'm also sharing this month's books and reviews. Welcome back on Swift Coffee, everyone!
This greek theme is seeming to go on on my blog these days, and I don't really know which is the cause and which is the consequense, but I'm happy to announce that while being in this mood I've had a chance to realize this dream: I have a little holiday (finally) and I'm flying to Athens for a week with my... well, by the time you read this, he's not my boyfriend anymore...

Well, too bad that while reading it (a couple of weeks before this post is airing) I was in the middle of a move from a temporarily very grey and rainy middle European country to...well, another temporarily very grey and rainy European country. And unfortunately, as I was very busy, I had to read this book taking small parts at a time, over more than a week. I have to admit that it didn't help a lot with completely enjoying the story... I still found it very interesting, atmospheric, and I found myself drawn in again and again - and that probably means a lot. Let's see what 'The Greek Persuasion' is about!
Another very similar book to the other ones in the series. I can only say the same things that I've already told about these books: very sweet and very good for teaching little kids about famous people who did something great.
Hey, This is my spot on the tour for the 'Chronicles of the Pale' organized by Rachel!
Summer has ended, and for probably the first time in my life, I'm actually happy about it. If you've been following my blog, you know that this was a hell of a summer for me, and that had its effect both on my blog and the number of books I'v read.
